Barberry has been used for thousands of years as an herbal remedy. It improves the appetite by promoting bile secretion. It has also been used for high blood pressure as it dilates the blood vessels. The tea is used as a mouth wash. A low dose stimulates the heart muscle.

It is also used to treat gallstones and liver problems including those from alcohol abuse.

CAUTION: A high dose slows down the heart muscle and also the respiratory system and could possibly constrict the bronchial tubes. Must not be used during pregnancy.
